Come and experience life as it may have been at the turn of the 20th century in the countryside in Swedish-speaking Ostrobothnia.


Stundars museum village in Mustasaari is one of the largest open-air museums in all of Finland. The museum consists of multiple buildings, that were all relocated from villages in Korsholm and the Vaasa region. In the museum village there is a country shop, a village school, and a farmhouse, as well as many artisans workshops and crofters cottages.

Stundars offers an extensive view into daily life during the turn of the of the 20th century, through guided tours in the museum buildings and the exhibits. At the museum village it is also possible to see work and handicrafts demonstrations, as well as take part in daily chores. During the summer season it is also possible to meet the animals living at Stundars.
Stundars has something to offer for all ages and there are public events and programmes all year round, such as handicrafts days, markets, and childrens activities. There is even an art studio and a printing museum, while Stundars also hosts caf Cirkas and the private restaurant Hemmer.

Stundars open-air museum had its beginning in 1938, when schoolteacher Gunnar Rosenholm founded the Solf village local history society. Rosenholm was an avid collector of agricultural artefacts and inspired the locals to take part in a unique museum project. The buildings are decorated to reflect daily life in the countryside of the early 20th century. On the hill there is a lofty farmhouse, surrounded by economy buildings, barns and a bakers cottage. In contrast to the relative wealth of the farmer there are the humble cottages and workshops in the Gray Village. These represent the dispossessed, who did not own any land and who made their living through day labour and handicrafts.
